Subject: [DebianGIS] build-indep for grass and other issues.

In order to 'solve' the build-indep issue of grass, I would introduce
a special target to build once documentation on the maintainer box
and create a uuencoded tarball for the debian/ dir.
One more issue is the confused and not too policy-compliant /usr/lib/grass/etc/
directory which contains a mess of various files/binaries. The only decent way
to manage that could be writing a script which autoclassifies
files and move them in the right package and directories, leaving
a symlink in etc for compatibility with the grass tree.

All should go into 6.2 and experimental of course. 


PS: I would like also grass folks find a plain and clear policy for paths
one day or another, keeping arch-dep and arch-indep things separated :)
